A new bubble tea shop has opened in Letchworth, with over 1,000 varieties available for customers to try.

Mooboo Bubble Tea held a soft launch at 5 Arena Parade on Sunday, May 14, with its 'Grand Opening' weekend set for this Saturday and Sunday (May 27 and 28).

The shop was formerly occupied by Joyce Family Butchers.

Anybody who wants to try Mooboo's drinks will be able to get a 'buy one get one half price' offer on their regular fruit and milk teas at the weekend.

Bubble tea is a tea-based drink that was created in Taiwan during the 1980s. It is made by mixing tea with milk, fruit, and fruit juices then adding tapioca pearls to give it its distinctive look.

Mooboo will be open from 1pm until 7pm on Mondays, and from 11.30am until 7pm every other day.
